Beatrice

My last painting, a little sicilian model in a typical costume.
Oil on canvas, 40x50 cm.
Any suggestion, comment or criticism is greatly appreciated.

Re: Beatrice

Bruno, this is precious! You've done a marvelous job on her eyes. I can't stop looking at her beautiful little innocent mouth. Outstanding.

Re: Beatrice

Molto bene Bruno!
This is a great portrait. Although the composition is great, her eyes steal the show.

Una pittura magistrale!
Truly a masterful portrait. Influenced by the amazing art that Italia has to offer, I am sure!

An exquisite essay in the tradition of Ingres and Bouguereau. Chapeau!

Re: Beatrice

This is so beautiful. I am so glad you posted it here. I really hope you continue to send us some things to see. Your treatment of her hair at the top of her forehead is amazing. I want to be able to do that so much. What is the secret?

I do have one question. The misty area at the ends of the bangs over the eyebrows caught my eye. What is the goal there? I would expect it to be darker and more of a skin tone or shadow.

Re: Beatrice

Thank you Wassie and MDerby
MDerby, I think the misty area is an artifact caused by the digital reproduction and the reduction of the image. Actually there's a reddish/brownish color that doesn't appear in this picture.

Wow.

Blown away.

IMO, one of the best portraits I've ever seen on WC.
